LA Angels: Mike Trout can be traded if he wants
There has been a report that the American professional baseball Los Angeles Angels may trade the team’s key player, Mike Trout (32).
토토사이트The LA Angels put their lives on the line to advance to the playoffs this season. They made a winning move to keep Shohei Ohtani, who is likely to leave elsewhere when he becomes a free agent (FA) at the end of the season. However, as of the 10th (local time), they were 13.5 games behind in the wild card competition, effectively missing out on advancing to the postseason.
A decision must be made regarding the direction of the team this offseason.
However, on this day, USA Today reported that outfielder Trout, who won the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) three times, could be traded if he expresses his intention to leave the team. Trout inserted a clause into his contract allowing him to veto any trade.
With the Angels expected to be eliminated from postseason contention for the ninth consecutive season, Trout recently revealed that he would like to have conversations with high-ranking officials regarding the direction of the team, drawing attention to the background.
If Trout chooses to be traded, something interesting could happen.
He signed a long-term contract worth a total of $426.5 million over 12 years from 2019 to 2030. There are still seven seasons and $248 million (approximately 330.1 billion won) remaining on the contract.
The problem is that Trout is not what he used to be. There are many doubts that he has become ‘glassy’ due to frequent injuries. There is a high risk that he will not be able to return this season due to a left wrist injury. In that case, he would have missed 249 games over the last three seasons.
Without a large salary subsidy, no team may be willing to recruit him.
Along with Ohtani, Trout’s future is also expected to attract the attention of baseball fans this offseason.
